My blue card uses only scraps of DP paper. They were scraps left over from Gabi's Nutcracker scrapbook page last week. Than I used scraps of cardstocks to mount the pattern paper. The pattern paper is from DCWV Christmas Glitter Stack. The snowflakes were buttons I found at Joann's, and forgot I had picked them up. They were a perfect touch on this card. I used some glitter from Martha Steward that I got on clearance. I like it's bigger for the snow under my penguin.
The snowman card is paper pieced from a retired line of TAC paper. I think I'm down to my final sheets of this stuff too. This paper has a nice traditional feel to it, a little different from my bright colors. I dusted each cut piece with SU's Close to Cocoa pad. I used one of the new EK punches from Michaels for the bottom piece. I always love when Trudy uses TAC's Running Stitches, on cards, so I pulled out today. It adds just a nice touch to a card. I need to use it more often. I used SU's Ruby Red, Old Olive, and Creamy Caramel cardstock.
And one quick shot of Gabi today. She had a birthday party to go too. Anyone with little girls knows how popular American Girl dolls are. The party was for a tea party, and you bring your favorite doll. Gabi wanted to dress like doll, so I took a quick photo before she left the house. Note the matching shoes. I helped pick out the dress, as she has one that is exactly the same, but I knew the birthday girl had the same dress and was wearing it today. Gabi's so funny, as she's walking down the stairs she goes, "Oh, it is the same design." I wanted to say back, "Yea, why do you think I picked it out for you to wear?!" I was nice and I didn't say it! She even picked out matching shoes for them to wear. So cute!
